VIRGINIA: Newt Gingrich And Rick Perry Fail To Make Primary Ballot
Just another day in the whacko GOP clown car.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has failed to qualify for Virginia's March 6 Republican primary, a development that complicates his bid to win the GOP presidential nomination. "After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10K signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary," the Republican Party of Virginia announced early Saturday on its Twitter website. Perry also fell short of the 10,000 signatures of registered voters required for a candidate's name to be on the primary ballot, but former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul will be on the ballot.According to the above-linked article, it's not clear if Santorum and Bachmann bothered to submit a petition at all.
